Zamfara: Former Minister, Ikira Aliyu Bilbis Finally Released

Alhaji Ikra Aliyu Bilbis, a former minister of information and senatorial candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has at long last been unconditionally released on bail following accusations of criminal conspiracy and public disturbances.

Recall that the minister was detained by police officers two weeks ago and charged with destroying All Progressives Congress (APC) billboards and other property at the Zamfara State Upper Sharia Court 11.

The minister was granted bail by the court with the tough requirements of providing two sureties: one who owns a residence in Gusau town worth N20 million and a permanent secretary who is currently employed by the state civil service.

NEWS DIRECT reports that he was not able to meet the conditions, which made him be detained in prison custody until Wednesday, 14th December 2022, when he was finally released unconditionally.

When contacted, the Legal Adviser to the state chapter of PDP, Barrister Shehu Ajiya, confirmed his release.

“The former minister was released on bail without any attached condition.

“At the resumed hearing of the matter on Dec.13, the presiding judge was not in court but later sent a notice of his release without any condition,” he said.

According to the state PDP Legal Adviser, the case was adjourned to December 27th, 2022, for hearing in the substantive suit.
